Tru-Blu Biodegradable Saw Blade Oil
Operational problems in Saw Mills
During use, saw blades become contaminated with pitch, sap, resins and other wood-based materials that cling to the teeth and surrounding areas of the blade body. This effectively coats the body and cutting edges, making the blade act as though it is dull. Friction and heat increase, cutting is more difficult and the cut edges of the timber are not as clean. Resins also insulate the blade, preventing the normal dissipation of heat, increasing heat build-up even more. Excessive heat not only accelerates the dulling process, it could cause the blade to warp or otherwise distort during use, increasing the chances of binding or kickback.
Though it may seem counterintuitive, dull blades are more dangerous than sharp blades. And blades that cut at maximum efficiency place less strain on your saw motor.
A dirty blade sometimes needs more push-through force, slower feed rates, can cause the timber to skew sideways and it could even generate smoke. There have been many good blades discarded when a simple cleaning could have reclaimed much of its useable life. Rollers Wheels and guides have similar problems.
Tru-Blu Saw Blade Oil™ is biodegradable vegetable based oil, specifically formulated for to give excellent lubrication, resist resin build-up on blades and reduce bacterial contamination in Saw Mill equipment.
Saw Blade Oil is based on locally grown vegetable oil.
Tru-Blu Saw Blade Oil provides an environment on the metal surface that resists adhesion by contaminates to the metals.
Formulated for use with Band Saws, Circular Saws, Rollers, Wheels and Guides.
Tru-Blu Saw Blade Oil can be used neat (or mixed with desired amount of water) by applying a small amount of the Saw Blade Oil on a consistent basis.
Application may be by way of numerous means including being sprayed on, gravity feed, pumped on with fixed dosing pump, or applied by means of an absorbent pad.
Saw Blade Oil is used neat or can be mixed with water.
Contains Canola oil
- Resists resin build-up. – less maintenance time and cleaner cut edges
- Resists bacterial and fungal contamination in pipework.
- Reduces heat build-up. Less blade warping reduces dulling and risk of binding.
- Low odour – operator comfort.
- Suitable for a variety of application methods.
- Excellent lubrication.
- Readily emulsifies in water – for even further economy
- Based on locally-grown vegetable oil – keeps our dollars at home.
- Biodegradable – >90% biodegradable when tested to CEC L-33-A-934.
- Excellent lubrication.
- High viscosity index – provides good protection even with elevated ambient conditions.
Saw Blade Oil should be stored in a cool dry environment away from direct sunlight and away from strong oxidising agents (i.e. class 5.1 or 5.2).
Although Saw Blade Oil is readily biodegradable, used lubricants should not be allowed to enter ground water,
water-courses, sewerage or drainage systems. Refer to local waste authority and dispose of lubricant in a responsible manner.
Saw Blade Oil is considered non-hazardous according to Worksafe.
